Re: Game 39: Pistons(33-5) @ Wolves(19-19)

and just look at the games we got ahead:
Today @ Memphis
Fri @ Rockets(with t-mac back on fire)
Sat @ Spurs
Mon vs. Boston


I'd say,with the way were playing,were lucky if we'll win two of those by the nails.

Who knows if anything will happen, but that along with the news that Artest said he wants for either the Wolves or Knicks makes me happy after a tough loss.
Where have you seen that Artest said that?

i thinks a big shakeup is really the only thing that could save this season,i wish that trade on peirce will happen,Wally and Hassell worth it,nothing to talk about Olowokandi.

P.S

sorry for the language before.

They said it during the game, and I heard it on Fox 9 news as well.

As for the language, I really just wanted to edit something, no biggy.

Ohh ok,cause i just saw Ric Bucher of the Espn,talks about what's next for Artest,he said us and denver fell by the sideroads in the chase.
He said lakers has the upper hand as of now,cause Artese just bought a house in Callifornia as he was thinking he was going to play for either of the LA teams.

What an atrocious deal for Boston. I already said my piece regarding this.

So the Celtics want to get younger or get cap space. They trade LaF's huge salary - for another one! Granted, Wally actually doesn't suck, but why on earth would they trade one big salary to get another one? They get significantly worse without adding youth or helping their cap situation in any major way. That's just plain stupid, I don't think any GM not named Rob Babcock or Isiah Thomas would ever do this deal from the Celtics side. Just keep Pierce in the first place, the cap situation is almost the exact same and you're better with him than S/Hassell/Kandi.

Secondly, Wally/Hassell/Kandi is not enough to fetch Pierce. If the Wolves backed out of this trade, McHale needs to be stabbed. Immediately. With a rusty icepick. Minny's cap situation sucks anyways, and putting Pierce next to KG makes this a very, very dangerous team. Backing out because of LaF's salary, when it is just as much as Szczerbiak's, does not make any sense whatsoever.

There is no way this rumor is correct.

Could someone tell me why you guys don't play Dupree more? or even in what way Hassell is better than him?
